Attacks on Christianity have become more numerous and more pronounced in today's world. Cornelius Van Til's book The Defense of the Faith is a classic treatment on apologetics and endures for our time as crucial reading for the thinking Christian. Designed to stop secularists in their tracks, it is the kind of seminal work that serious defenders of the faith cannot afford to ignore. After laying a foundation in the Christian views of God, man, salvation, the world, and knowledge, Van Til explores the roles of authority, reason, and theistic proof, while contrasting Roman Catholic, Arminian, and Reformed methods of defending the faith.

This work has a cumulatively delightful effect in exposing the pretensions of human autonomy and the grandeur of Gods sovereign grace. In his careful, thorough, and sympathetic notes, Professor Oliphint has done us all a tremendous service: turning down the frustration and turning up the delight! Michael S. Horton, Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics Westminster Seminary California
K. Scott Oliphint is professor of apologetics and systematic theology at Westminster Seminary, Philadelphia.
If Cornelius Van Til is the most original apologist of the twentieth century, The Defense of the Faith is arguably his most important book. This new edition provides an enormous service to the reader. The somewhat challenging the text is abundantly illuminated by Scott Oliphint, who is no doubt the leading expert on Van Til in our times.
As an assigned text in my introductory systematics course, The Defense of the Faith typically meets with a combination of frustration and delight. Frustrating because Van Til often engages ideas, terms, and conversation partners unknown to contemporary (especially non-Reformed) readers, this work also has a cumulatively delightful effect in exposing the pretensions of human autonomy and the grandeur of Gods sovereign grace. In his careful, thorough, and sympathetic notes, Professor Oliphint has done us all a tremendous service: turning down the frustration and turning up the delight!
